abstract = "Many theories of irony are based on the idea that to interpret an ironic utterance, we need to consult a separate cognitive function. This cognitive function, which presumably is seated in a different brain area than the more purely linguistic ones, would allow the hearer to make an informed judgment about the speaker's intention. Social cognitive functions such as Theory of Mind, are often proposed as embodying this other cognitive function. In this brief essay, I attempt to slightly change the focus from the ironic utterance itself, to the underlying social cognitive processing that supports interpretation of any utterance at all.",
